Five Speckled Frogs

Besides being fun, singing with your child brings numerous emotional and academic benefits. Research has shown that children who have been exposed to singing activities (like nursery rhymes) are more proficient in rhyming skills and the pronunciation of new words. So many familiar songs include rhyming words—see if you hear any in “Five Speckled Frogs!”

With the rise of technology in our everyday lives, it’s important to look at how we are using it with our children. Enhanced interactive digital books are a great way to engage with your child while reading to them. Tapping, moving, and reading are all important when using these apps. The Stellaluna app by Living Books is both fun and educational.  You can find more storybook apps on our iPads in the Family Place.
